Don't understand what you mean by won't stay down, but is this new memory card a 4GB or larger SDHC card? If so, it will not work with your older camera. You will need to use 2GB or less standard SD card only. Fortunately, these are relatively inexpensive these days. Recommend checking on Amazon.com.
There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Memory Card Locked / write protected error.


Hi due to so many questions asked about this here it is. How to deal with memory card locked/write protected error.


kilgourt.gif



SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.



SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.


For non-SD cards: Format the card

The data on the memory card may be corrupted.

WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.

My coolpix 1600 will no longer accept a memory card.The card does not stay down.


How long ago did you purchase the camera? If it physically won't stay down then I would try a different card. If you can isolate the problem being with the camera. Then somehow either damage to the slot was done or it is defective. Depending on what you choose repair or most likely replacement would be your best option. If you have any questions let me know.
Thank you,

I took the memory card our and it will not stay down it says can't format where can i go to get it fixed hpdigital425camera windsor ontario


Hi,

Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

If this does not help, You need to use a Memory card adapter or Card Reader to do so,

Ron

cameras : My Camera Freezes When I Turn It On Or Take A Picture

P, td, li {font-family: arial, u; font-size:9pt; margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px; word-spacing:1px;} If you camera freezes when you power it on or when you try to take a picture, you may have a defective memory card. To test your camera and the memory card, follow these steps:
  1. Power off your camera.
  2. Remove the battery from your camera. If you have a memory card inside the camera, remove that as well.
  3. Clean out any dust or debris inside the battery compartment, and then re-insert the battery into your camera.
  4. Power your camera on without the memory card installed.
  5. Take a picture.
    • If your camera takes a picture, re-install the memory card, and then go to Step 6.
    • If it does not take a picture, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below.
  1. Format the memory card in the camera, and then take another picture.
  2. Important: Formatting erases all pictures and other data from the card. If you have pictures on the memory card you want to keep, download those pictures to your computer before you format the memory card.
    • If your camera does not take a picture with the formatted memory card installed, replace the memory card.
    • If the issue still persists after you’ve installed a new memory card, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below

Camera insist on memory full, but card is empty


Press "Menu" Press button to the right (towards a little flower on my camera) which takes you to the "setting" menu. scroll down to "format" right click again and it reads "All data deleted" and then gives you the option to "Format" or "Cancel". Select "Format" and then "ok" and pronto....your memory card is ready to go.
